Q: What happens to a girl when she loses her virginity?

I'm a virgin and I want to know what happens/what I would feel once I decide to have sex just out of curiosity.

Will it hurt? Does it bleed? Is it likely to bleed?

Hi Izzy

 

Well all I can say is that the first time is going to be different for everyone.  In all good conscience I do want to say a few things to you.

 

1.  Your viriginity is precious meaning...once you do this you can never go back.  Make sure it is the right time and with the right person. 

 

2.  If you are planning to have sexual intercourse you need to think about protection not only so you don't become pregnant but also so you don't get a sexually transmitted disease.

 

3.  This is your body.  It is okay to say no. 

 

Okay now that that is out of the way...

 

Yes it might hurt and especially the first time.  You also may likely bleed but this is not a given.  You may feel uncomfortable emotionally and physically. 

 

Here is a very good resource which talks all about what your first time may be like.

 

I hope this helps some.  Please be careful.

It's a small price to pay, whatever the discomfort, for the pay-off that your little opening will entitle you.

I didnt blees much. At first it was a slight pain maybe a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. Then discomfort. I felt weird after and no one had told me what to expect.  But I got through it. It really isnt that bad as long as he knows ur a virgin and as long as he is gentle and takes it slow you will be fine I was 14 and so nervous and scared when I lost my virginity.  I am now 21 and loooooove sex!!!!!!
